A MURDER MYSTERY IN BLACK & WHITE
It’s Portland. The 1950s. The world is changing. Fast. Faster than most people can keep up. The Soviets launch a beeping ball of aluminum called Sputnik into space. Doctors are transplanting kidneys from one person to another. War has broken out on the Korean peninsula. Rock and roll and color TVs are all the rage. Nuclear submarines prowl the deep seas. The Giants win the pennant, despite the fact that they stole signs to do it. Sound familiar?
Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
On the northwest edge of Portland, a seemingly ordinary accountant is found dead in a locked room. No motive. No suspects. No gun — smoking or otherwise. The police? Pssh! They haven’t got a clue. But maybe you do? Whaddya say, gumshoe? Think you got what it takes to private-investigate your way to a solution? Hope so. In fact, you’re the only hope we’ve got.
This is real life — or the end of one, anyway. And it won’t be easy. You’ll have to unravel a thick web of crime, money, and betrayal — not to mention mobsters and femme fatales keen on keeping what’s secret a secret. Capisce? Good thing you’re the best in the business. You gonna solve the case, or will you let the trail go dark and cold?
